Blizzard made WoW easy. Let me ask you. Do you think mmo players really asked for it ?
My guess !!!.....Blizzard and other Developers are acting on their own on this subject TO PUSH EXPANTIONS. I don't think kids are complaining at all.....It's just a marketing trick.
We have no hart-pumping content at all in mmo's any more. Some would call this " Old School " but hard content has nothing to do with outdated content. We just have easy and I really don't think anyone is asking for it.
Dynamic Events and Rifts - For me they are getting old already. For me this is forced game play,
Auto grouping - Same as above, its getting old already. This makes for solo play with others on your screen.
Personal story - Anything story makes an mmo not an mmo. We have Skyrim for that.
Cool little video clips - Let me ask you. With a group of five new found friends, just entering a Dungeon, are you all really enjoying this crap ?.....Are you really sitting back relaxing for five minutes when you have a group ready to go ?
Why does hard = old school. Who even named it that ?.......What does exploring then finding a Keep, cave, or hole in the ground, with extreamly hard content inside have to do with old school. Remember when stuff like this was not even advertised. You just found it on your own. Players would find it and using word-of-mouth, places like this would become a hot spot. Now it's a major feature.
I guess you have to be 50 and up to enjoy a hard, community driven mmo with a lot of un-advertised, un-knownes. I like an mmo that you better have a large friends list or a good strong guild if your even to think about leaving a popular quest hub. But then I'm 49 years old.
It's my opinion but Blizzards Titin project, and SOE's EQ Next is gonna be crap right out of the gate !....Easy, auto-feature, solo crap. Just another 30 day video game with others on the screen.
